The measure addresses the increasing importance of non-monetary exchanges between firms, a tendency that is particularly visible in times of financial crisis.

People taking initiative to create a parallel means of exchange without depending on the debt based  abuse system is a very good news.

It will be interesting to see if this concept spreads to other French cities.
